A man accused of gunning down another man in a mall parking lot entered a not guilty plea on Thursday morning.
Toby Lasure went before a judge at the Fayette County Circuit Courthouse.
Lexington police say Lasure shot his ex-lover, Christopher Tolliver in the parking lot of Lexington Green back in March.
Family members say Tolliver was in the process of breaking up with Lasure and chose a public place because he feared for his safety.
After the shooting, police say Lasure led them on a chase across town and eventually ended up holding police at bay for hours at the Ridge, off Man O' War Boulevard.
Police say during the course of negotiations, Lasure admitted to the shooting.
